"Lie Down" as written by and Ken Andrews....
We're just temporary souls in your common tractor

Scraping out the mold from an old reactor
Come on pretty baby, won't you take a taste with me

Just around the corner we can find some action
What the fuck you doing with the fake(strange) reaction
When all I want to know is will you take a taste with me

[Chorus]
If I lie down, would you lie down
If I lie down, would you lie down

I'll just wipe the pretty glow off your mouth with my sleeve
Watch your features change as it fights your blood stream
I was never sure I could see behind your eyes

Oh that merry case which could make me happy
I know it's hard to take but we can feel happy
I was never sure I could see behind your eyes

[Chorus]

'Cause I will shudder with the cloak that I wash my pain in
And I will scream with overflow by the rain you dropped in
Tell it, I could slowly
Waste it, looking for the
Ruin, we could bring it down and slowly

[Chorus]

Damage, I can't see
Wasted and I can't breathe
Ruined, you could bring it down

If I lie down

    ...
    "ah just wipe the gritty glow off your mouth with my sleeve"
    ...
    "in an ordinary case this could make me happy,
    i know it's hard to take when you can't feel happy"
    ...
    "cause i will shudder with the glow that i wash my faith in"
    ...
    "damaged, i can sew your sleeves back. Wasted, we can fall through morning. Ruined, you can bring it down with your same old story."

    ...well, it's what the CD insert says anyway...

    General CommentFor some reason this song sounds incredibly sexual. Like, mutual oral sex (sixty-nine) or something?

    General CommentWell it is pretty obvious this song is about heroin -

    - scraping out the mold from an old reactor (cleaning your spoon)
    - come on pretty baby, won't you take a taste with me
    - just around the corner we can find some action
    - WATCH YOUR FEATURES CHANGE AS IT FIGHTS YOUR BLOOD STREAM
    - cause I will shudder with the GLOW that I wash my pain in
    - and I will scream with overflow of the rain you dropped in (cooking heroin with lemon juice)
    - wasted we can fall through morning (come down)

    Geez. I thought it was obvious.
